More About the Author
As for the books, let's start with the Jonathan Shade urban fantasy series. Shade is a private investigator who handles cases dealing with magic and the paranormal. He has a magically engineered assassin named Kelly Chan who keeps him alive, and a ghost secretary named Esther from the 1920s flapper era who loves him and helps with his cases.

Anubis Nights (first in the time travel sequence)
Sunset Specters (second in the time travel sequence)
Wizard's Nocturne (conclusion of the time travel sequence)
THE UFO CONSPIRACY FILES SERIES
Guardians of the Sky
Rogue Alien (coming soon)
title of the third book is also a secret, but the reptilians probably already know *
* yes, this means the author hasn't a clue what this book will be called, but does know there will be at least three books in the series
STAND ALONE NOVELS
One-Way Ticket to Midnight
Pirates of the Outrigger Rift (written with Bill D. Allen, who is writing a sequel--Freetrader's Fortune--which will kick ass and take names soon)
SHORT STORY COLLECTION
Finally, we should talk about Jack Talon, the vampire gunslinger in the old west. Gary created the series, and wrote the first book then turned it over to other writers to carry forward.
NIGHT MARSHAL SERIES
Night Marshal: A Tale of the Undead West (by Gary Jonas)
High Plains Moon (by Glenn R. Sixbury)
This Dance, These Bones (by Rebecca Hodgkins)
The Ghoul of Socorro (by James K. Burk)
Night of the Monster (by Gary Piserchio) - coming soon
The first three were collected in a box set.
Okay, that's enough talk. Go read some books. If you don't want to read Gary's books, that's all right, but read books by someone. The world is better if you read. Really.

Well, needless to say, I was proven wrong. It's a fascinating book, a great depiction of the Old West, starting with "Suicide" Jack Talon, a good, old-fashioned gunman now struck low by tuberculosis. He's been on both sides of the law, and now he's dying, but he's determined to keep moving, keep playing cards. And if anyone objects to his winning, Jack's not afraid to use his masterful skills with his gun. He's killed men, many men, and it doesn't bother him.
His loyal wife Sofia is a regal beauty who follows Jack to the end, nurses him, tries to stop him from fighting and faces certain knowledge of losing the man she loves. When they turn up in a small mining town, Jack's doing poorly, Sofia's tired of the traveling and someone else is in town, raising hell. Jack just won't miss out on the fun, for one thing, and also, he knows others will die if he doesn't help out.
Many years before, the town had been invaded by vampires, but the city fathers had destroyed the vampires and put their bodies in an abandoned mine. Bumbling drifters unknowingly release one of the blood suckers from his grave and before long, people are dying and Jack Talon is back on the job, trying to protect his fellow humans. Many good twists in this story make it a good read and a new take on the vampire story. I'm hoping this is a series!
Jack is hired to kill Smythe...so far so good and I really enjoyed the action up to this point (hence the 2 stars) but then the story really goes nowhere...will Smythe agree to "change" Jack and Sonya (so they can continue to live and love...and of course drink a little blood along the way :) or will Smythe receive what he really deserves a stake through the heart...and his head chopped off! We spend the second part of the story discussing and debating this issue and "frankly my dear I couldn't give a damn" (that's a nice expression :) what happened? it just all became rather boring and academic the author ran out of steam and what should have been a good idea fell apart.......
